New York, May 22 (ANI): Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bomb suspect, has claimed that he received financial support from the Pakistan Taliban for his failed operation.

Two U.S. law enforcement officials close to the probe revealed on Friday that Shazad had confirmed during his interrogation that he had received money from the Pakistan Taliban through the "hawala," route.

According to the New York Times, the officials spoke to the media on condition of anonymity because the investigation is yet to be completed.

The attempted attack set off a massive probe involving hundreds of federal agents in several cities.

Nearly three weeks later, investigators have so far concluded that once he was funded, Shahzad acted alone, the officials said. (ANI)
